My grandma bought this back when my mom was a little girl on their first trip. My mom is 60 now so that gives you some idea of the age My grandma gave it to my mom quite a few years ago and my mom gave it to me a couple years ago. My grandma died almost 5 years ago, so it's a really cool keepsake for numerous reasons. I thought I'd share it before I put it away for the season and I knew some people here could appreciate how cool it is Super cool candle!!
